Warriors fever has been at an all-time high ever since the powerhouse Golden State team captured their sixth NBA Championship title — a special back-to-back win and their third title in the last four years. Fans of all ages have lined up at locations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond to get a glimpse of the trophies, each made of nearly 16 pounds of sterling silver and 24-karat gold by Tiffany & Co.
Bon Appétit Management Company was honored to be chosen by the Warriors to be the team’s food service partner at the brand new Chase Center opening in 2019, and given the pricelessness of the trophies, CEO Fedele Bauccio and the rest of the local team were extremely excited to host a private Warriors trophy viewing party at Foundry & Lux, Bon Appétit’s public restaurant in South San Francisco, CA.
Clients, partners, and Bon Appétit employees enjoyed tastes from some of the Bay Area food icons Bon Appétit will be showcasing at the Chase Center: buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches from Oakland’s Bakesale Betty; albondigas tacos from San Francisco’s Tacolicious; lobster rolls and clam chowder from Sam’s Chowder House of Half Moon Bay; the original burger dog from Hot Dog Bills, previously available in San Francisco only to members of the Olympic Club; smoked beef brisket sandwiches and savory sweet potato and kale hand pies from Big Nate’s BBQ (executed by Bon Appétit at the Presidio Culinary Director Robbie Lewis), as well as an array of Warriors themed desserts crafted by Executive Pastry Chef Ian Farrell at Bakery 350.
In between enjoying the food and taking photos with the trophies, attendees could extend their Warriors wardrobes with silkscreened T-shirts made on site and their choice of hats. It was a fun and blue-and-golden evening for all.
